In order to get get “bridge mode” networking to my router, I have replaced my verizon modem/router with this new BR1 MINI. This is used in a rural area in New Hampshire 03287.
When initially testing the BR1 in a more urban area, the BR1 MINI downloaded 20 mbps while connected to a local tower on Band 2. When I connect from my rural location, it chooses Band 4 and only downloads at 3 mbps, while upload speed is more like 7 mbps. When I force to band 13 it’s even worse (<1mbps download). I don’t think band 2 is available on this tower.
While I don’t have a screen shot of a speed test with the old modem/router, this is much slower. Why would this be?
I can offer more detail is it’s helpful: I have a static IP, RSSI shows -60db, connection only works if I specify APN = ne01.vzwstatic.
